Hadith Explanation


Pill for Envy


The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Death is sufficient as a reminder.” [Tabaraani]

“I am a man who has stretched forth his neck with a sword held above it awaiting the order to cut it off.” [Al-Ihya]

We know this sword, for we witness it every day coming down on a loved one, a relative or a friend, thus, severing their ties with this life and taking them away from their loved ones and companions. Allah has given us respite with regards to our life term, but only to an appointed time that will not come early or late even by an instant.

Abu Darda (radi Allahu anhu) said: “He who remembers death often, then his delight becomes less and his enviousness (of others) diminishes.” [Siyaru A’lami an-Nubalaa]

This is because he who remembers the end and places its imminence before his eyes, will have no cause to rejoice or envy others, for he reminds himself of the horrors of death which will separate him from this earthly life.
